Just as the title says. Is there a way to turn off the fake engine sound? Pull a fuse, a wire or what?
Thanks in advance.
Thanks in advance.
It is fake sound. When my audio unit locked up the sound was gone.I am still unsure if it is a fake engine sound, or the real engine sound being processed through noise cancellation. I tend to think that in regular drive mode, we're hearing noise cancellation applied to the actual engine noise, and in sport mode, there is less/ no noise cancellation, but I don't know for sure.
That said, I have no idea what it would take to turn it off. An option in the menus would be nice. Since this is basically digital sound processing it would be simple to add a control switch for it.
I'm not an expert, but I believe you'd get the same result if this were engine noise being processed through noise cancellation, assuming they have used enough sound deadening material so that you're not hearing the engine without the audio system.It is fake sound.

Are you suggesting we have one, or to add one like on the Focus ST?Sound symposer on the intake
Exactly! I'm currently driving a '10 Mustang GT that has a tube that feeds sound into the cabin. The Mustang V8 has a nice sound track of it's own and even with stock exhaust, has great exhaust sound, but the tube gives it a little bit of a carburetor typed sound, a little burble that enters the cabin.Does the sport have a sound tube that comes off of the intake? Seems several cars now a days have one, even my mustang with a V8 had one that fed a tube into the cabin for additional sound.
This is the official commercial...I forgot who and where the post was that had the orgasm inducing turbo V6 (alfa romeo?) please post link again to give us all something to dream about, and for those who don't think a turbo V6 can sound so good.
I guess looking into this further, the fusion does use some type of digital sound not a symposer like the ST , I knew I had read about it and could hear it in the cabin of my fusion, but most recently it has vanished, but with the exhaust system I don't miss it, it could be the exhaust just drowns it out and I don't hear it any more, but the axle back system I installed is not that loud nor does it have any drone like some others had asked.Are you suggesting we have one, or to add one like on the Focus ST?
The FoST, as you obviously know, has a sound symposer, but I didn't think there was any audio system enhanced sound like on the Sport, is there?
If all we had was a sound symposer, one could get a sound symposer "delete" which is available from several manufacturers for the FoST. Unfortunately for the OP and others this will not "shut off the fake engine sound" in our Sports.
Although in the FoST you hear induction sounds as opposed to exhaust, I could at least appreciate that they were real engine sounds.
Thankfully our fake sounds are decent, but would still prefer the real deal.
